I’ve decided to sort out the spare room. Got rid of the bed sofa today. It came in useful a few times, but it was so big and heavy. I had a hard time moving it around the room to clean, never mind putting it up and down. I had it a few years ago, but it’s now got to go. I’ve also sorted out a few of my clothes to get rid of. I’ve got a long way to go in that respect.
I took the bedroom door off to get the bed sofa out easier, but it will also enable me to shave the bottom of the door. It’s not shut properly since I had the new carpet laid – a few years ago. One of those jobs that has needed doing for some time, but I just never got round to. I’m not going to feel guilty about it – procrastination is a human trait. I accept it whole heartedly.
There’s a heap of stuff in the airing cupboard that could go. A few old curtains amongst other things. I haven’t sorted through it completely, but I’ve already found a few things in there that I had completely forgotten about. Stuff that has been hidden for many years. It needs to be emptied completely when I have the new boiler installed, as the hot water cylinder is being replaced at the same time.
It’s only a small room but I could use it for so much. Definitely not lodgers. I don’t pay bedroom tax as I’m not on benefits, so I won’t need to rent it out. I hope I can say the same thing in the future, but I’ll have to wait and see.
